Engineering new tissue

GomillionAs an undergraduate student at Clemson University, Cheryl Gomillion knew she wanted a career in the medical field but wasn’t sure she wanted to be a physician. A co-op experience with a pharmaceutical company and a conversation with a career counselor led her to graduate studies in bioengineering, a discipline she describes as “the best of both worlds.”

Now an assistant professor in the University of Georgia College of Engineering, Gomillion is working to develop natural tissue replacements to repair and restore damaged or diseased tissues. Gomillion hopes her research will help people facing medical challenges ranging from congenital disorders to breast cancer.
